I got so sick of how the author kept throwing '80s stuff into the reader's face. Shane is living in a trailer park since his late parents' house was foreclosed. The story was sweet and funny, he fell in love with baby Logan and wanted to be a better man for him so he started to improve his life which previously consisted of him working construction and getting drunk with his friends. Kate was just an okay heroine for me. When his parents were killed while he was still very young, he took over guardianship of his younger sister but they have become somewhat estranged lately. But as they spent time together and she saw him with Logan, she saw beyond the broke musician living in a trailer park.
Our hero is Shane Martin. He is there one night and this girl comes onto him strong - they make out with some groping in between one of his sets with plans to take it further later on. I'm really glad I did. The best part of this novel was Shane's journey as he tried to navigate his world with this newfound child. The hero of this story, Shane, is a young struggling musician. Nothing was told from Kate's perspective, no one sentence or thought and I found it hard to see her as his partner. Baby, be a simple kind of man.
In 2015 she was the winner of The Best of Bucks Award and she has been nominated as Best Author in the Bu Lydia Michaels lives in Pennsylvania with her wonderfully supportive husband, beautiful daughter, and many crazy fur babies. Baby, be a simple kind of man. We were charmed then, i was charmed now. And if you do this It'll help you some sunny day. And then she did it again. I came across this book when I was looking through a hidden gems list on GoodReads and it called to me.
She really liked this author's style, but the book was a bit spendy for me without having experience with the author. Mostly is was humming but he was trying and it's was so cute!! Him and his roommate dealing with baby poop, and feedings, and how he had the cutest relationship with his baby nephew just melted my heart. There's something about the way Lydia Michaels writes, she brings a sense of realism to the story, and has an innate ability to engage a reader's emotions. It seems the author just threw Will in to make Shane look better as a parental figure. He iterates this same thought more than once. I bet he was, in his designer polo with his parted hair. The intimate scenes were off the charts but the more tender scenes appealed to me even more.
It tells us the story of Shane, a struggling tattooed musician who lived in a trailer park, who's been entrusted the care of his nephew, an infant. So that just felt wrong no matter how you look at it. This story touched my heart and even brought me to tears. That's where the story lost me and I dropped it about 60% into it. An enjoyable read and I'll probably find a way to read it again sometime.
Someone who hasn't had the same experience, may not. They're all vintage this, vintage that, singing U2 and The Beatles and Lynyrd Skynyrd and shit. He is trying to show her tough love, but ends up pushing her away and she disappears for 8 months. This book on the other hand brought out the shining characters, the diamond in the rough, the simplicity of the fruits of love and hardship. It took a while for me to warm up to Kate, the Heroine, and their relationship. There is hardly anything better than a man who stands up for those he loves.
This intro is accompanied by a and before the drums and vocals come in for the verse. Shane is a real person you could see any day of the week, could be you or your next door neighbor. I loved that too, since I can't remember a guy in a book - or real life, admitting that! In the beginning, Kate's all prim and proper which was always mentioned by Shane. He makes out with a woman, whose nam And here I thought this book would be fun and amusing. I just felt that the marriage proposal was a little rushed in the end and they needed a little more time together to convince me they were truly, deeply in love, hence the 4 stars. Contributions of any amount help make this project possible including the many, many hours I put into it. Again, listen to my video lesson to see this in action.
That was a real hit to his pride. Blissfully ignorant, Shane trades in his musician status, full of late nights and fast women, for midnight feedings and lullabies. It tells us the story of Shane, a struggling tattooed musician who lived in a trailer park, who's been entrusted the care of his nephew, an infant. The former is going to be far more helpful to most people. See my video lesson for a pretty thorough walkthrough of this counting stuff. I was just shocked when I came to these scenes and upset.
She made sure to mention The Breakfast Club and The Goonies. His problem with this stuff? I miss him so much. This book on the other hand brought out the shining characters, the diamond in the rough, the simplicity of the fruits of love and hardship. His trailer home is the hang out for he and his friends. It is a story of a simple man, with no games to play. He was forced to drop out of school and get a job to make ends up but still ended up losing his parents' home.
Lydia Michaels did not hold back. There is another scene after this as well. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't like it. Simple Man is a book that definitely warrants to be re-read! He's proud that I have a song just for him. Shane is living in a trailer park since his late parents' house was foreclosed.
